Canada Line Operations & Maintenance Centre Tour

Last week on May 19, 2009 I had the opportunity to visit the Canada Line (new automated rapid transit system linking Vancouver, Richmond and the airport) operations and maintenance centre.

The system has been under construction since 2005 and is scheduled to open on Labour Day (first Monday in September) Sept. 7, 2009.

The trains are all made in Korea by a subsidiary of Hyundai, the Rotem company and is not compatible with the current SkyTrain system in Vancouver. The two systems do not interconnect.

For more information please see the Canada Line Wikipedia page.
